Are You Prepared for Hydroplaning Conditions?

If you find yourself driving in significant rain, the conditions for hydroplaning can arise. When this happens, your vehicle feels like it is skimming over the road which can be both frightening and hazardous. There are, however, steps that you can take to avoid hydroplaning.

If you notice that water levels on the road are rising, then you should reduce your speed 5 to 10 miles under the speed limit and avoid suddenly accelerating. Another preventive measure that you can take is buying better quality tires that are designed to handle hydroplaning conditions. Tire quality is extremely important in these types of conditions so ensuring that the tread is up to par is also important.

If you have any further questions about how to prevent hydroplaning or if you have other maintenance needs, then please visit the service center at Zeigler Maserati of Grandville. We are staffed with professionals trained to address any of your concerns.
